LionRoar recently released a set of SRC 610 antenna mounts for US WW2 vehicles.
Made from turned brass, these little buggers are small, but nicely formed, and will certainly make your kits look better than the standard injection molded kit parts, as there will be no clean up required.
Measuring a mighty total length of 1/2 inch, or a smidgen over 12mm for those "mm" type of modelers, and the mounting pin will knock off an 1/8 inch or just about 1.5mm from the actual length. In my opinion these puppies are worth the few dollars they cost, when you consider there are no mold lines or ejection pin marks to worry about. Simply drill a hole and put them in place.
You don't even have to drill out the end for the antenna, as it's all ready for your choice of antenna material.
The instruction sheet simply shows them mounted on an M2 & M3 half-track, and an M4 Sherman.
With four (4) bases in the package, it's not a killer cost, and not being a radio expert, I'm not sure what other radios they could be used for, or if they are STRICTLY just for WWII usage.
The $3.99 is the posted price at Lucky Models, and I've checked around the other usual sites in the US, and found these listed between $5 to $6 USD.
Highs: An affordable enhancement to your US models.Lows: Can't think of any.Verdict: Useful, affordable, and look a lot better than any injection molded ones I've seen.

I plead guilty as charged to excessive babble, light hearted humor, and continued encouragement to youngsters...
